Not Even Julie Plec Noticed This 'Vampire Diaries' Connection While Directing Tonight's 'Riverdale'

Julie Plec directed tonight’s episode of Riverdale — and even she missed out on this connection until it hit her.

Die hard Vampire Diaries fans might have picked it up though — Thistle House (the home that Cheryl and Penelope Blossom live in now) is the Salvatore Boarding House!

“It was so funny, I had seen Thistlehouse on camera but it hadn’t registered with me,” Julie shared in a new interview with Bustle. “And when we pulled up the driveway for the location scout to go see it, I was like, ‘This is so familiar. I feel like I’ve been here before.’”

The house was used as the Salvatore Boarding House in the first ever Vampire Diaries episode.

She adds, “I actually took a good look at the house and realized it was the Salvatore House from [The Vampire Diaries] pilot. Isn’t that hilarious? Because we shot the pilot in Vancouver [before moving to Atlanta for the series]. And the backyard of it which is so gorgeous is where we built our cemetery. That was a nice flashback!”

Riverdale airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
